Panting trout in heat

A great pic of what we did not catch. Anticlimactic. That word best describes my much-anticipated trip to Vermont/New Hampshire. There are other words that spring to mind, but I need to consider those of you out there with tender sensibilities. Bottom line: trout like cold water and c ...

Anticipation

Somewhere, trout tremble. I'll soon be traveling to Vermont for a marketing meeting, and I've scheduled an extra day to fish the Connecticut River with a friend. My buddy Joe is a fly-tying animal, and he's whipping up some fantastic looking 2.5-inch EP-fiber streamers (see above) for ...

Conservation champion

I recently ran across a blog called "blogfish" run by a gentleman in Seattle named Mark. We've traded some emails related to links and personal philosophies (including the ofttimes perpendicular perspectives of anglers and conservationists). I'd like to point my readers toward blogfish.com wh ...

If you fish shallows using a trolling motor, sooner or later your hull will rub flush with soft mud that inhibits forward progress...or stops you altogether. A push pole works well in this situation, but there's not always one available. Getting out and pushing means a messy boat...and often ...
